Dawson Knox and the TE position

Recommended Posts

Haven’t had a legit TE in years.

 

Dawson Knox remains my most unpopular Bill. He does nothing but drop passes and makes a play once every blue moon.

 

A good TE would work wonders for this offense. I know some have mentioned Zach Ertz and that would be amazing, but don’t think it would happen.

 

Any TE’s out there worth looking at or are we going to have to throw the kitchen sink at Kyle Pitts in the draft?

That Cinci angry run is going to be his only career highlight... He's just not good enough.

No question Knox has failed to progress this year. Injuries haven’t helped, but he still has problems with consistency and looking the ball in.

Yea, when Allen is dealing with drops and penalties all game then Knox drops a massive gainer right in his hands... I just about lost it.   I'm pretty close to being done with him.

Knox is still a work in progress and he has the POTENTIAL to be a big time contributor.  At the same time you're right that we need a lot more production out of our TE's - particularly between the 20 yard lines.

 

My one concern is that the Bills offense is one dimensional . That we are a QB/WR driven O.  This will work against lesser teams and when Allen and the guys are ON this is a hard offense to handle.  But you can shut down the WR's if you don't have to worry about the TE's AND the RB's.  The other glaring need on the Bills is a running game and a true #1 RB.

I said it as well in the offseason that the Bills needed to upgrade the TE position. I felt Knox could be a decent backup TE, but his drops are preventing him from being a reliable and effective TE. Had posters tell me I was nuts and they were sure Knox would improve. So far, still the same result.

My kingdom for Kyle Pitts this upcoming draft

He is approaching bust status.  He's way too inconsistent and is not a dependable target.  It's a shame, because I had high hopes.  He's simply not getting any better.

Knox stinks.  He has a lot to prove.  Singlehandedly is costing us some decent drives.  When he actually catches the ball  in space he can run well.

he has bad hands.  great athlete with poor college production due to a lethal lack of the most important skill for his position.

 

i could see him bouncing around to other teams and becoming a better player in the future, but not particularly likely

Kind of hard to overcome not consistently catching the ball when you’re supposed to be a pass catching Tight End.  But Beane certainly seemed all in on Olsen so that was definitely one that got away.

Well you answered it in your statement.

 

Also the Injuries on the Giants are his built in excuse

I'm fine with having mediocre TE's if we can get the defense turned around. The offense is not the problem.
